Family challenges can sometimes be difficult to manage. Parents and carers can often find the pressures of family life overwhelming and simply too much to cope with alone. As they navigate lifes challenges Home-Start in Suffolk’s network of more than 280 fully trained volunteers, offer practical and confidential emotional support, when they need it most. 

At Home-Start we recognise how hard it can be to raise a family. We work alongside parents and carers with at least one child in the home under the age of 12, helping them to cope with the stresses and strains of life. The support we provide is delivered through weekly home-visits, telephone and virtual calls or at one of our regular groups.

We provide a non-judgemental professional friendship that helps families to gain the skills they need to nurture their family; helping them to grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children, improve their health and wellbeing and widen their links within the local community.

  • Home-Start’s approach is as individual as the people they are helping
  • Home-Start support is provided at no cost to the family
  • In 2022 more than 1,500 families accessed Home-Start support services
